Don't stay at the Hotel/Motel on the main road (state highway 1) in Paekakariki. It's horrid and there are lots of other nice places to stay instead.
I've heard of some nasty things happening in the spa pool at that motel!!
Apparently this place is really nice to stay in. It looks pretty nice and is 30 seconds from the shops and cafes and 1 minute from the beach and 2 minutes from the railway station.
I've heard good reports!
Ensuite rooms with private decks overlooking the sea are available, or dorm rooms and other double rooms.
NZ$21pp for a double room (US$10, UK£7).
This is a pretty nice campground up in Queen Elizabeth Park. Like everything in Paekakariki, it's by the beach (with no roads to cross -- so good for kiddies).
Camping, cabins, backpackers lodge, playground, usual facilities.
Lovely peaceful spot. Right near where the Marines camped in WWII.
